This project report studies and forms a conclusion on the benefit/drawbacks of the deregulation of electrical service. The focus was first directed to the State of Massachusetts, and then the nation as a whole. The authors of this project are of the opinion that the effects of deregulation will be positive in the long run. A more dynamic power industry will be created, able to make use of technological innovation, and do so more efficiently than the existing structure. More responsible power companies will supply cheaper power.
